We offer a wide range of financial awards to support individuals to study in the Dance Faculty at Trinity Laban

The majority of our awards are given in the form of a reduction in your tuition fees, unless you have your fees covered by another source (such as Student Loans).

Undergraduate Financial Awards

Five Trinity Laban BA (Hons) Contemporary Dance students will be offered near full-fee scholarships for their entry year in 2024 thanks to a new partnership. These five scholarships are intended to overcome barriers and to encourage access to study at Trinity Laban. This will include but is not limited to: students experiencing financial hardship; students from Global Majority backgrounds; students living with disabilities and complex needs; students who are refugees or displaced persons; students from the LGBTQ+ community; students in care (‘care leavers’); first-generation university students.

Trinity Laban Undergraduate Bursary Scheme

All undergraduate students with Home fees and a residual household income of up to £30,000 qualify for financial assistance under the Trinity Laban Undergraduate Bursary Scheme. Students who have been granted a Student Loan will receive an annual cash bursary of £1,250 in February for the duration of their undergraduate programme. This is automatically processed by Student Finance – no additional application is required.
